A Morning With Cecelia Ahern

A Morning With Cecelia Ahern

On Saturday 21st September, I took myself off on an adventure to the suburban area of Rathmines in South Dublin.

The reason for the adventure was the launch of Cecelia Ahern’s latest book called ‘Postscript’ which is the highly anticipated sequel to her debut novel called ‘PS I Love You’ which hit the bookshelves 15 years ago,

The event took place in the picturesque Stella Cinema, an Art Deco theatre that wouldn’t look out of place in F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, with its exquisite lighting and opulent interiors.

Lucky attendees of the event were treated to a healthy and scrumptious breakfast of pastries, Greek yogurt with granola and a cheeky glass of Prosecco before settling down in the cinema to watch the film adaptation of ‘PS I Love You’ starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.

With a box of salted popcorn for company, I settled down into the leather armchair and joined the rest of the audience on the heartbreaking story of Holly and Gerry on their tragic love affair, I laughed, snorted and cried along with everyone else as a dead Gerry urged Holly to step out of her comfort zone through the medium of letters.

Once the film was over, we enjoyed a Q&A with Cecelia and IMAGE magazine’s group brand director of Rosaleen McMeel. Cecelia talked about her writing journey and how her story has helped people deal with grief and loss. She admitted that she cried ugly tears whilst writing the book, so I’ll have that to look forward to when reading the book next and her main splurge when writing is a Jo Malone candle that accompanies her through the writing process of each book. Warm-hearted and funny to listen to, Cecelia had the audience in the palm of her hands when she revealed the exciting news that Hilary Swank had emailed her wanting to read ‘Postscript’ and after reading it, is fully on board to bring Holly and Gerry’s love back to the big screen, as well as interest from Nicole Kidman’s production company to bring ‘Roar’ to life, which was a collection of short stories.

After treating her fans to one novel a year for the past 15 years, Cecelia is taking a well earned break from writing as she prepares for the imminent arrival of her third child.

A huge thank you to Harper Collins Ireland and IMAGE magazine for the kind invite as well as the goodie bag of a copy of ‘PS I Love You’ with customised tissues and the latest issue of ‘IMAGE’ magazine. A Morning with Cecelia Ahern was organised by An Post, sponsor of the Irish Book Awards.

You can buy ‘Postscript’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

Cecelia Ahern Reveals New Book – Postscript

Cecilia AhernlWonderful news for fans of Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling novel, ‘PS I Love You’, as Cecelia has revealed that she has written a sequel to the book called ‘Postscript’.

What the back cover says –

When Holly Kennedy is approached by a group calling themselves the PS, I Love You Club, her safe existence is turned on its head. Inspired by hearing about her late husband Gerry’s letters, the club wants Holly to help them with their own parting messages for their loved ones to discover after they’re gone.

Holly is sure of one thing – no way is she being dragged back to the grief she has left behind. It’s taken seven years to reinvent herself, and she’s ready to move on with her life.

But Holly comes to realize that when you love someone, there’s always one more thing to say…

With the news only being announced today, there is already so much excitement over the book and with a cover yet to be revealed, there’s something else to look forward to!

You can pre-order ‘Postscript’ from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 19th September 2019.
